Forbes – a national publication best known for ranking the trust funds of wealthy Arab Sheiks – decided to document the 10 most hated people in pro sports. Fan favorites like Tiger Woods and Terrell Owens found themselves on the list, but a surprising name beat them both out to assume the top spot.
Al Davis, the Crypt-Keeping owner of the Oakland Raiders, earned the label of the most hated sports human of 2011. According to Forbes, “creepy is the most common term fans use to describe Davis, a longtime renegade owner with a history of tussling with the league, his coaches, and the cities hosting his team--he's yanked the team from Oakland to Los Angeles and then back to Oakland again.”
Other names on the list include Michael Vick, Albert Haynesworth and Jerry Jones. Ben Roethlisberger was able to avoid the honor despite picking up his second rape allegation over the offseason, while Mark McGwire notched a spot on the rankings despite being a decade removed from competitive play.
